Van that has been rented by a business

3 benefits of business van hire

Did you know, July is Independent Retailer Month? An annual event designed to encourage consumers to shop local and support the #indieretailers in the area. So, it’s quite fitting that this year, it’s the month we hope to see the economy reopening.

The last 18 months have been tough, with most places forced to shut due to the pandemic. And although restrictions are set to be lifted in a few days, it will take a while before things are completely back to normal.

Now is the perfect time to re-think the way your business works. One thing to consider, is whether it’s worth buying equipment, or renting it so you can avoid any big upfront costs while you get back on your feet. And here at PSD Vehicle Rental, we believe that business van hire could help you to thrive.

From one independent business to another, here we explore some of the main reasons why you should consider long-term vehicle rental going forward.

  1. 1. Cash flow

First things first, renting a van is much cheaper than buying one. There’s no need to agonise over the upfront cost, or how much cash you’re tying up – cash that could be better invested elsewhere! And you won’t have to worry about depreciation. Just pay a small fee, one month at a time, and keep your outlays to a minimum.

If your business is VAT registered, you can also reclaim your monthly payment as a tax-deductible expense. Which means, more money back in your account to spend on something else.

  1. 2. Flexibility

We appreciate your business needs can change from month to month – particularly during these uncertain times. And one of the main benefits of business van hire is that it’s flexible.

Here at PSD, we have a diverse selection of vehicles available to rent, from a small car-derived van to a 7.5 tonne box tail lift truck. And it’s possible to swap your vehicle or change the size of your fleet each month to suit your needs. We also offer a range of mileage allowances and changes can be made, at any time, without penalty.

It’s a risk-free option, that will expand and contract with your business accordingly.

  1. 3. Convenience

Vehicles require continuous admin and maintenance. But with a business van hire, that won’t be your problem. For a small additional fee, we’ll take care of all maintenance on your behalf – including servicing, repairs and replacements. And all of our vans come with a complimentary 24-hour breakdown and recovery, windscreen and tyre service.

What’s more, we can customise the vehicle with branded livery – again, making that our responsibility instead of yours. There’s no need to waste any time choosing a van to buy. Our hire service gives you access to the latest makes and models, so you can make a great impression on your customers, without breaking the bank.
